I am back from a mini break. I did not go anywhere, just a break from day to day routine and a chance to review the past quarter of the year. Let’s see how many of my goals I managed to colour in!

8 out of 12. Not bad. The spring decorations are ongoing hence the shading. I personally don’t feel inclined to complete the rest of these goals apart from the recipes.

Here’s my new set of goals for the next 3 months. I have a lot more creative goals that I want to pursue this time.

Let’s hope these are all coloured in soon!

Weekly Round-Up March Week 2

I am sitting here with a new member of the plushie family. Meet Eccojams the dolphin:


Only a squid from a charity shoppe!

If you don’t know, I have quite a collection of plushies. There must be at least 20 in my bedroom! If only I can put as much effort into my goals as I do with buying plushies. Ah yes, my weekly goals. This past week was a bit of a slump. So much so that I only done gratitude on 2 days! Yikes. The only thing I really achieved was finishing decluttering. However I did say that was my primary focus for last week, so it wasn’t a complete defeat. The 2 things I am grateful for are hot chocolate and having one peaceful early morning which are very rare. It’s the simple things.

This next week, I hope, is a lot more productive. I am planning on spring cleaning, planting my butterfly flowers, finishing and printing my calendar, illustrating spring decorations and reviewing and writing up my goals for the next quarter of the year, which I will illustrate for this blog.

Weekly Round-Up March Week 1

Last blog post I mentioned a tree near where I live fell down and had to be taken away. I have since learned that my dad has kept a small cutting of the tree for our garden. The tree lives on! This has made me happy. 🙂

This week has been a productive one. I decluttered all my toiletries and make-up and changed the colour schemes on my calendar. I hope to finish decluttering everything by the end of next week, ready for spring cleaning. That is the main priority this week.

I have been writing my gratitude for 6/7 days this week. Here is what I am grateful for en Français.

Forgive me if some of the French is wrong. I had to Google translate some of it. I will learn French properly in the future!

(Translations: music, my duvet, Bonjela for my wisdom teeth, entertainment, my friends and having time to relax)

March Monthly Mayhem

Pinch Punch 1st of the month!

As of writing this post, the tree surgeons have come to clean up a large tree that fell down during Storm Doris. I have fond memories of trying to climb said tree when I was a child, and a deep familiarisation as an adult. It feels slightly melancholy to see the tree that was always there be taken away. I guess the moral of the story is no matter how long things stand, something will eventually change.

One thing that is constantly changing is life. So let’s have a cheesy segway to my March monthly goals!

Goals for March are:

♣ to KonMari declutter all belongings
♣ finish and print off calendar I made (I know, I know, 3 months into the new year)
♣ illustrate and print out cute spring themed decorations
♣ plant my butterfly wildflower kit (I’m not a gardener at ALL so this is big for me)
♣ spring clean
♣ blog weekly updates
collect grabitude crackles!

I am also going to be reviewing and adding goals for the next 3 months ahead. Will all the illustrations in this picture be coloured in?
Wait and see!
